Je comprends pas comment je me retrouve toujours dans ces situations. Je le sais que j’aime pas particulièrement marcher. Mais pour quelques raisons que ce soit, je continue a m’aventurer dans des treks. Il est 6h00, on marche dans la boue depuis une heure déjà, au beau milieu de la jungle du Guatemala. Pourquoi? Alors ..
Why do I keep doing that to myself? It’s 6.30AM, we’ve been walking for an hour in the jungle. We’re in Guatemala, in the Rio Azul reserve. So far all we’ve seen is mosquitos. Not even a bloody squirrel. Mosquitos have found us though. Before we’d even put a feet out of the tent. They’re ..
Our ride through Mexico including Durango, Zacatecas, Guanajuato, Puebla and South on the federal 190 libre, Oaxaca, Matatlan, Chapas and Chapa de Corzo
We’ve crossed the border about 3 days ago, from Mexico to Guatemala. We crossed at La Mesilla. It went quite smoothly to be honest. We were told to avoid week-end and try cross early morning. So we crossed on a sunday in the afternoon. Obviously. I was not nervous to cross the border, but I ..
I loved the federal 190 libre. What a road. If you read this I hope I am going to convince you… the 190 is a road worth to get a licence, fly to Mexico and ride it all the way down. From Durango we rode the 45 libre, with Steve, and the scenery was quite boring. ..
GoPro video of our ride from Tijuana border to La Paz, on our BMW G650GS Baja California – Mexico
It’s 9.38, we’re having a coffee americano, in Oaxaca. And obviously some galettes. I feel full and I’m happy. Not that I’m happy because I feel full. I actually often feel full. I feel like a balloon. I could explode. Thanks god I don’t. I blame that on the tortilla we’re eating everyday. Every Day. ..
Dopo una ventina di interminabili ore insonni di traghetto da La Paz, Baja California, a Mazatlan, Messico mainland, dormiamo in un hotel da quattro soldi che ci fa parcheggiare le moto in corridoio. Uniamo le forze con Steve, canadese, che viaggia da solo su Suzuki DR 650 e che a spanne prevede di fare il nostro stesso ..
Alors y a ces rencontres chaque jour… Y’a les rencontres avec d’autres voyageurs, comme nous, en moto. Y’a les rencontres des mexicains, incroyablement gentils et relax. Y’a les traversées de 16h en ferry qui se transforment en 24h sur mer agitée… Y’a les petits problèmes d’estomac régulièrement Bref tous ces ingrédients qui font d’un beau ..
When we heard that “No, go back!” we just passed Guerrero Negro, in Baja California, and we were following the indications for “Ojo de Liebre” where we should have found a beach with cabins. That road after a couple of miles became gravel, and after a bit longer became sand. Riding on sand with our ..
what you see in the picture is our bike on the Stelvio Pass, the greatest road in the world. I call her “Chierichetta la settima” in English it’s something like “Altar-girl the 7th”. Sophie is calling her Titin, which I am also beginning to use :/ I don’t think altar girls exhist anymore, if I ..
A video of our favourite roads and moments in California, including Dead Valley, Sierra Nevada, wine region and the Pacific coast
Tomorrow the Mexican part of the adventure is going to start, we are in San Diego, ready to cross the border after a good night of rest. But we have been in California for ages, we stayed over much longer then any other state. And I guess it comes natural, it’s a big state with many ..
I just got a message from Ana not understanding why on earth there isn’t any pictures or comment about californian wine yet. she is right. It’s been nearly a week I’ve been drunk them. Then I have Pontiac who feels I’m letting her down. The last picture of her dates from Kansas. She feels as ..
“Just make sure you take the Highway 1 from San Francisco to LA”, that’s what we have been told since we landed in New York, most days. Today we understood why… A hundred miles ride by a wild Pacific coast. I mean, a waterfall on a white beach. And sea lions. Where else does that ..
For sure the longest road trip we have ever done so far. We reached 10.000 kilometres in one place I will never forget, on the top of the Sierra Nevada, a place I had always heard about in movies and stories but I never knew where it was of it was even real or fantasy. ..
I think we woke up at 6:45, probably our record, in Las Vegas. I won’t miss Vegas, it can be fun if you go with a big wallet, but in a budget trip like ours everything seems terribly expensive. And by staying in a cheap hotel you just miss the whole point of being there. In ..
Some Americans would tell you it’s just a big hole, others are proud of it. Some one compare it to incredible human achievements like the pyramids or the colosseum, even though the Americans didn’t build it but take the credit for it. Whatever is the case, the Grand Canyon is one of the wonders of ..
Il est 8h30. Nous sommes à Grand Junction, au Colorado. Il pleut. Mais pas le choix, aujourd’hui il faut absolument qu’on avance. Ils annoncent de la pluie pour les trois prochains jours. Si on part pas maintenant, on risque d’être coincé ici pour un moment. Surtout que pour atteindre l’Utah, on doit passer par les ..
Domani andiamo al Gran Canyon! Ma prima vorrei commentare i luoghi visti negli ultimi giorni, che mi hanno regalato centinaia di emozioni, mille motivazioni per continuare e sopratutto hanno dato un senso a tutti i rischi presi finora. Parlo di Colorado e Utah! E ne parlo in italiano, visto che Soph ha già scritto un ..
and every week-end throwing everything at the back and go to Utah! How’s that sound? Well that is pretty much how I felt every seconds since we entered Colorado and arrive in Canyonlands in Utah… You’d probably have to stay in Denver as outside there is not thaaaat much. Well the outskirt of Denver in ..
Arrivare alla Route 66 era il primo obiettivo che ci eravamo prefissati. Pensavamo di percorrerla fino al Pacifico, più o meno. Invece, ci accontentiamo solo del tratto da Tulsa a Oklahoma City. Dopo Oklahoma infatti abbiamo deciso di proseguire per il Kansas e Colorado che sembra essere la meta raccomandata da tutti insieme al New ..
